Teacher's Name: Mr. James Werick
Grade/Subject: Grade 7&8 Social Studies / Religion
We’re off to a great start in…
Gr. 7 Social Studies: Students are refreshing their map skills, pondering the connections between environment and culture, tracing the Asian ancestry of Native Americans, and discussing European exploration of the Western Hemisphere.
Gr. 8 Social Studies: Students are reviewing the acquisition of the Western Territories, compromise legislation regarding slavery, the election of Lincoln, and the Civil War. We’ll move on to the Era of Reconstruction, and all that changed (and did not change) as a result.
Gr. 7 & 8 Religion: Students are asked to consider the personal relevance of Christ’s mission to uplift the poor and oppressed, and the Roman Catholic concept of Social Justice. We resume our outreach programs at the Response to Love Center, St. Luke’s Mission, and Journey’s End Refugee Services.
